Laboratories are extraordinarily intricate and complex structures that often require a large amount of energy, water and chemicals to function.

So how do you design with sustainability in mind ? Taking a flexible, long-term approach is particularly important on science buildings, because technologies that could become key later on may not be viable at the moment of design.

Tune in to hear more on how we design laboratories with the future in mind.

Guests in this episode:

  • Leslie Gartner, Senior Vice President – Science + Technology Design, WSP USA
  • Narada Golden, National Director – Built Ecology, WSP US
